Rimmel Apricot Punch Scented Polish
Half of this polish was gone but I don’t think I’ve ever swatched it which is surprising as it’s such a lovely colour PLUS it’s scented – and you know how I love a gimmick.
I think I may have got a dodgy bottle of this as it was really gloopy and thick which is unusual for Rimmel polishes. This was three coats and it took a lot of Seche Vite to get it to dry due to the gloopiness.
It is a good job it’s such a pretty colour – a peachy coral that is a great summer shade. And the smell is lovely! (Feb ’16 EDIT: It looks like Rimmel have discontinued this shade, but you can still get it HERE)

Models Own Banana Split Review
Hands up. I admit it. I am a sucker for a gimmick. I am also a sucker for pastels. So when I heard that Models Own were doing a pastels collection of nail varnishes that were scented I was all over it. Like spots on a dalmation.
‘Banana Split’ is a baby yellow creme polish that isn’t as opaque as it looks. I really wish I had done a white undies layer because this needed 3 generous coats. But it all smoothed out and dried fine with Seche Vite on top (although there’s a slight gathering of polish at the tips of the nail which is annoying me…)
This polish didn’t smell like real bananas – even BETTER – it smelt like the foam penny sweetie bananas! Mmmm…I was craving pick ‘n’ mix every time I smelt my nails!
I actually realised after posting this that I already own a Models Own pastel yellow (lemon meringue) which is IDENTICAL to this but doesn’t smell of bananas so obviously I had to have both. I have a serious problem.
Has anyone tried any of the other polishes in this collection? I bet the ‘Apple Pie’ one is incredible… You can buy this polish HERE, but I warn you: you will get a lot of weird looks from people wondering why you’re sniffing your nails!
